GuyWeb

One down, many to go

Here’s a screen shot of the first of many sites rolling of the Guy Carberry web design production line. It’s for a technology course here at the OU. It’s taken me a few days to fully realise the design but I’m fairly satisfied with the result.

This is an internal page from the site with secondary navigation on the left.

Brief overview

The site uses an Aqua style interface with an aim to look a little bit space-age. I think it achieves this aim fairly well. It’s pure XHTML/CSS throughout and the tabs along the top use the fabled FIR (Fahner Image Replacement) technique. However the transistions use background-image positioning to avoid flicker in IE. All fascinating stuff I’m sure you’ll agree. The site wont be available unless you take the course but I’ll see if I can put an edited copy online for all you webby people to feast upon.
